Cat Shaped Lamp Peers Right Into Your Soul

Meet Felix, the interesting and weird cat sculpture lamp built by Studio Job for Italian brand Seletti. We call it interesting because the skillfully crafted lamp takes the look of a cat rather well, and the eye lamp looks rather interesting, to say the least. The lamp shows Felix with a straight-up tail, indicating the cat is feeling relaxed.. that’s also where the weird part comes in.

The modulOne from PassivDom is quite an interesting house. Or, to be more accurate with the company’s description, “autonomous 3D-printed mobile house”.

It is claimed that the thermal characteristics are high enough for the house to use 20 times less energy than an ordinary building.

Story, The Levitating Clock

I’ve always found it interesting how the simple clock can be marvelously complex. Even for a generic timepiece, a whole lot of skill goes into fitting those cogs and gears just right.

The custom-built bike is hand brazed in Detroit with the goal of being a work of art and a mode of transportation like no other. In that objective, it certainly does succeed, creating a rather impressive look.
